Summary of Sales Revenue and Net Earnings

Titan Logix Corp.'s sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $3,949,891, an increase of $148,998 or 4% from sales of $3,800,893 in the previous year's second quarter.

Sales outside of Canada were 60% of Titan's total sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to 49% in the previous year's second quarter. These sales have increased as the Company has had success in increasing its market penetration in the United States and has also benefited from the strengthened U.S dollar compared to the same period last year. For the first six months of fiscal 2015 ended February 28, 2015, sales were $8,995,136, up by $761,926 or 9% from sales of $8,233,210 in the first six months of fiscal 2014.

Business Outlook

The decline in the price of oil has begun to negatively impact sales of TD80 systems in new tankers in the second half of fiscal 2015. We continue to evaluate the estimated depth and duration of the impact on our sales into the new tanker markets, which we expect to be significant. Our mitigation plans include increased retrofit sales efforts and sales into non-crude oil markets. Our strong financial position and leadership team enables us to weather current uncertainties, build upon our established reputation, and capitalize on opportunities being pursued this fiscal year. Diversification opportunities include building out the 'In the Field' and "In the Office' components of our business.

Titan has the dominant market share for the monitoring of crude oil in over-the-road tankers in North America. To more completely facilitate the monitoring of crude oil at all points along the value chain, Titan is working on expanding its product line to include advanced technology automated stationary tank gauging. This will enable us to provide an ideal integrated total asset management gauging solution for crude oil movement from the well head to the refinery, monitored in the cloud through Titan's telematics partners. The storage tank gauging market is fractured with a variety of products, many of which are mechanical.

Our TD80/Finch II/RCM technologies continue to be widely accepted. This is facilitating retrofit sales which are very important during this time of low crude oil prices. Of equal importance is our TLC gives TCC program (Titan Logix Corp. gives Total Customer Care) where we work with our OEM, dealer, strategic partner, and end user customers to ensure product suitability and reliability thus maximizing the benefit to our customers.
